"You can’t know a market just by reading analysis. You’ve got to know the feel of the place, how people live there. Origin is very sophisticated about understanding each transaction at that level."
"The information on Origin’s portal tells you everything there is to know - what they’re buying, why they’re buying it and when they’re going to sell it."
"Origin’s capital being alongside mine gives me a lot of confidence. It means they take a personal outlook on investments, and it makes their recommendations that much stronger."
Sell everything. That’s what famed investors such as George Soros, Carl Icahn, Jeff Gundlach, Bill Gross and Stan Druckenmiller have been preaching about equities since May, noted Barrons this August—at the same time CBOE’s Volatility Index fell to its lowest level in two years.

This spring, the real estate startup Cadre e-mailed a small group of investors, offering them the chance to buy part of a 100,000-square-foot office building in Greenwich, Conn. They were directed to a web page where they could see video from a drone flyover and listen to the owner describe why he’s selling property to a bunch of strangers. Within two weeks, the company had a dozen clients taking part in a $60 million deal.
Origin Investments and Randolph Street Realty Capital sold the 73-unit Lux24 for $35 million, said Origin Co-Founder and Principal David Scherer. The developers have staged a complete turnaround of the property, which not only was a victim of the condo crash but also was at the center of an alleged Ponzi scheme. They converted the development into a rental building, a move that paid off amid a red-hot downtown apartment market and the West Loop's renaissance.
Cherry Creek Plaza will undergo a multimillion-dollar renovation and repositioning following a recent joint venture between Chicago-based Origin Investments and Corum Real Estate, a longtime Denver commercial real estate firm.
